Obtaining A Life Insurance Quote

Feb 1, 2008
When obtaining a life insurance quote, you may think of approaching one insurance company that your family has used for years. That is no longer the case as the marketplace is wide open and the insurance companies are all vying for our custom, offering competitive deals on affordable life cover. The problem of how best to source the insurance marketplace is easily resolved by using a specialist website that gives full access and helps you find the best deal.

Using this specialist website allows you to find the best life insurance quote quickly and easily. Having only to enter your details the once, it instantly provides information which can be organised in a format that best suits your needs. It can be saved and retrieved later at your convenience allowing effortless comparison the policy contents. This saves you both time and money and reduces the stress of finding the best life insurance quote and there is no obligation to buy the policy.

Nowadays, when taking out a mortgage or loan, you are no longer required to use the insurance company specified by the lender. You have the freedom to choose from which life insurance provider you buy the policy. As this specialist website is independent and not affiliated to one particular life insurance company, the information provided is impartial. This may be a consideration for those who do not wish to use a financial adviser and incurring their subsequent fee. This unbiased service enables you to select the life insurance quote that offers the appropriate cover, from an extensive range of trusted life insurance providers.

When searching for a life insurance quote, we normally look for the lowest premiums available. Factors governing the size of the premiums are the sum to be insured, the period of insurance cover, your age, your sex, occupation and whether you smoke or not, (normally someone who has not smoked for at least twelve months is classed as a non smoker). Occasionally, insurers will place qualifications on the life cover, for example, the completion of a medical examination, before they agree to provide life cover.

If you are looking to take out life insurance so that you loved ones will receive a cash sum upon your death, it is important to be aware that you are only covered for as long as you pay the monthly premiums. If you stop paying the premiums, the policy stops. In addition, as there is no investment element with 'term life insurance' (the cheapest and most basic form of life insurance), there is no maturity value payable at the end of the term. The most appropriate type of life insurance for this purpose would be Level term assurance. This pays a one-off lump sum upon your death if it occurs within the duration of the life insurance policy and the value of this sum remains constant throughout the period of the policy. Premiums are normally paid monthly although some policies allow annual payments.

It is important to review the policy details carefully before choosing a life insurance quote. All these aspects of life insurance can be compared easily using this specialist website, allowing you to make an informed decision.
